This was a hotel that a friend and I booked very last minute due to it being the best deal. We did not opt for the 'breakfast' as previous reviews did not recommend it..and they were correct. Very little option. We went Lidl (woo hoo!) and brought breakfast there to eat next morning etc. Customer Service was Brilliant - Bella... More

I have been staying at The Torre Velha for 20 years on and off, have been with family, friends and on my own,it ticks all the boxes. You couldn't possibly wish for friendlier staff or a more ideal location, (5 mins walk to the beach,10 mins in a taxi to town) Prices for rooms, food and drink are very reasonable.... More

The hotel is in a very quiet location away from the nightlife and bars.Obviously you need a car or taxi to move around, or to go to a different beach than the one that is near the hotel. There is always parking space outside.The rooms are good value for money and clean.We met various personnel at the reception:Some were very... More

I have good and some not so good to say about Torre Velha.. the not so good is more constructive citisism amd by no means a bad review. Over all, this litle place is a little gem...this is largely due to the staff and how friendly they are as apposed to location. You couldnt want for anyone better than Bella... More

The hotel is quite and the staff are very friendly. Rooms are basic but clean. It is not 5*, so do not expect it. As a budget hotel it is very good. To the person that thought the staff were rude, all I can say is you get what you give. Everyone else thought they were great and most were... More

Just returned from a weeks stay at the torre velha. It is quite a small hotel about 10 minutes drive from the centre but don't let that put you off! We went with our 20 month old baby and even though there's nothing much for kids to do he loved it! The staff were very willing to help you out... More

I will start by saying if you want a good holiday for god sake do not book this hotel. We have just returned from our holiday after having to spend 2 weeks in this place. To put it in a nutshell this place almost ruined our holiday. The staff are rude and spend more time outside smoking and drinking than... More

Lets start by not calling the Torre Velha a hotel but more of a friendly bar restaurant that has a swimming pool and rooms making for a nice friendly atmosphere. Its is well supported by genuinely friendly and helpful staff in a quiet location with just a few other bars and cafe's close by. The rooms are quite small having... More

Great place for holiday very quiet close to the beautiful beach. Staff very nice and friendly. Only 15 min drive to the centre of albufeira . There is lots of restaurants around the hotel and the food is great! The car is a must there it's quite far to walk to the shops. Taxi to the city is cheap cost... More
